REVIEW AND SWATCHES OF ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS CONTOUR KIT




Contouring is one of the most important parts of makeup nowadays. People are learning and taking the contouring part very seriously as it gives a proper structure to face.

It actually took me months to learn the art of contouring. As contouring always depends on facial structure.

Now a few months back I pick up ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS CONTOUR KIT (THE ORIGINAL ONE, POWDER FORM).
Today's post is all about this amazing kit.

Little more info about this kit:-

 
A best-selling set of three powder highlight and three powder contour shades. Use Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Powder Kit to create the illusions of higher cheekbones, a slimmer nose, softer jawline, or smaller forehead.

Blendable satin finish
Removable and refillable set
Can be layered over Contour Cream Kit to intensify results
Available in 3 shades

Price:- $40
Availability: - Anastasia Beverly Hills website, beauty bay, cult beauty, Instagram stores.

Packaging:-

The kit comes in a black cardboard box. The box has a magnetic closure. Inside the box, there are 3 powder highlighter powder and 3 contour powder. The powders are refilled type. One can get 3g of each powder in this palette. As the powders are in refill form so once you end up any powder from this palette you can buy it as a single from the website and put it inside the palette inserts. In this way, you don't need to buy the whole palette again and again. The magnet of the palette holds the refills really strong thus there is no chance of breakage while traveling.

My experience:-

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit comes in three shades. I picked up the shade light to medium as I am warm undertone with fair skin tone.

The 3 highlighter powders in the kit are VANILLA, BANANA, SAND.
The 3 contour powders in the kit are JAVA, FAWN, HAVANA.

All the powders in this palette are buttery in texture. Thus, they all blend easily giving a perfect contour look. Both highlighters and contour powders are matte in texture except the highlighter SAND, which has subtle shimmer on it.

Pigmentation:-

 
 All the highlighting powder are medium pigmented so it is very easy to control the amount of it while the contour powders are super pigmented. So one needs to careful with contour powders.

Staying power:-

 
The contour powders stay on my skin for 6-7 hours with sight fading if I don't use the primer. While the highlighting powder lasts long forever, I mean unless and until you remove it.

Among all the highlighting powders I like the shade BANANA as this one particularly just perfect to set under eye concealer. And according to my skin tone the shade HAVANA goes really well for contouring. Rest of the powders I use on others while doing makeup.

Down Points:-
The price of the kit is little higher and moreover, this kit is not available in India so if you are planning to buy it then either you had to buy it from International website or from Insta stores which might charge a bomb. So definitely it is the down point about this product.

Next point is, this is a contour kit, which has three different options for highlight and contour so if you are not a makeup artist or if you don't do makeup on your sisters or cousins then this kit might be useless for you. As it consists of three probable shades of highlighter and contour for different light to medium skin tones.

But again this kit has many dupe in other brands which are easily available in India like NYX, MAKEUPREVOLUTION. So if you can't grab Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit then definitely you can try out kit from above-mentioning brands.

Final Verdict:-

 
Overall I love the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit and I will definitely recommend it to try it.











That's all for today. Until next time.
